Definitely a really good squat. No big problems at all, you are definitely getting low enough. However, if It was me I would work on getting my hips just a little bit more forward. I think if you sat back a little less and let your knees come a little bit more forward (just an inch or two) it would do a few things for you. It would let you use your quads a little more, alongside your posterior chain. It would probably let you get depth a little easier, and it would prevent your chest from dipping and you doing a good morning once the weight gets heavy.
Again, the squat looks really good and you could probably make a ton of progress and get really strong with your form just the way it is. But I think that down the line as you keep adding more and more weight, working to get your hips and knees a little more forward will keep you upright, load your quads better, and make sure you keep hitting depth. So that’s my advice. [/quote]
Thank you for replying, sorry I am just getting back to this forum topic now.
In quoting you above, I feel as though the low bar squat would get rid of the fear in performing a ‘good morning’ once the weight gets heavier, and still maintain the balance through the use of the posterior chain. I have tried to correct the low bar squat with what you prescribed, however, I am finding difficulty in activating a ‘hip thrust’ when I am ascending out of the hole. I find my hips are not utilized as efficiently when I am getting heavier, and getting my hips/knees more forward. Thoughts?
Great advice though, I definitely feel more quad work, and that has helped in my ability to perform power cleans more efficiently.
